About Choate, Hall & Stewart LLP 
Choate, one of the nation’s premier law firms, is different from the vast majority of major firms in ways we believe materially benefit our clients.  All of our lawyers are under one roof in Boston, and we focus on a select group of areas where we practice at the top of the market, nationally and internationally, and represent clients in their largest and most significant matters.  This increasingly unique model allows us to provide unparalleled levels of efficiency, teamwork and accountability and to deliver seamless client service.

Approach to Client Service

Our single-office model gives us the ability to match clients with a dedicated, leanly staffed team of lawyers led by highly experienced, hands-on partners and associates working under their direction.  Choate’s lawyers work together in one location and across services, maximizing value for clients by developing a sophisticated understanding of their businesses and goals and fostering long-term, collaborative relationships. 

Through independent research with our clients, we’ve confirmed that the teamwork of our lawyers affords us the unusual ability to partner with clients in their success by offering customized, high-quality, practical, business-oriented solutions.  This has earned Choate a top ranking for client service by BTI Consulting Group’s survey of Fortune 1000 companies.   

Choate’s Clients

Choate’s clients extend across the US and many foreign countries and include Fortune 500 companies, public and private technology and life sciences companies, private equity and venture capital firms, leading financial institutions and wealthy individuals.  Choate and its lawyers are consistently recognized by third parties worldwide for excellence in their fields, including: Best Lawyers in America; Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business; The Legal 500 United States, a guide to the preeminent law firms in the US; World’s Leading Lawyers; International Who’s Who of Lawyers; and PLC Which Lawyer.
